Given the slew of privacy regulations and publicly disclosed breaches, laptop encryption is now a must-have.
Nexus S is first device targeted in beta release of full disk encryption app for Android.
Apple has replaced its original FileVault technology with a full-disk encryption option in OS X Lion.
The company's new 3.5-inch terabyte drive that also offers full-disk encryption joins a growing number of encrypting drives from Hitachi, Fujitsu and Seagate, and likely more to come.
PGP Corp. says a full-disk encryption utility for Mac OS X is being developed, which will pick up where existing programs like the built-in FileVault leave off.
IT security budgets remain tight. One major exception, however, is the willingness of companies to pay for full disk encryption for laptops.
The strategy to bundle SafeBoot's full-disk encryption into McAfee's PC security software is a sound one, but it's still hard to justify the $350 million sale price.
